Hello, can any one give me any info on these plants? and explain how most of you anchor them to the bottom of your tank?

I currently have them spread threw my tank and i am using the led strip they gave me to keep them at the bottom , but some of them it was not enough to keep them down so i put a stainless steel nut threw the led which helped them stay down, i also used on the smaller clumps a twisty tie to keep them at the bottom covered with rocks of course,now i have had to redo this 3x now becuase they were not tight enough and some stems came out and were floating in the tank, so i made it tighter around the bottom stems, i hope it's not to tight? so they won't grow? they seem to be fine at the moment but i m not sure i did this right, i dont want to kill them,i also have the plant liquid called flourish i beleive.

Any info will help and heres a pic to thanks people!

It's a high light plant that will do best with some CO2. How many wpg do you have on the tank?

You can tie it to driftwood with fishing line.
Here is a good article on a DIY co2 for your tank.
